I was trained by both Chinese masters in Hong Kong and the United States. I am the only practitioner who combines acupuncture, stress management, meridians body work, floral tea, and oriental diet in each patient visit. Chinese physical medicine from my grandmother allows me to enjoy great success rates in treating pain. I discharged a patient with neck pain after only one visit, and another patient experiences no more back pain and restless legs after 3 treatments.

Almost any condition can be successfully treated with acupuncture because the goal is to correct the imbalances that are the underlying cause of the patient's symptoms. I find acupuncture is particularly beneficial for those with any type of pain: headaches, back pain, muscle, joint and nerve pain. It is also helpful for those with endocrine/hormonal issues, PMS, irregular periods, menopausal symptoms, digestive issues, abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea. Also: anxiety, insomnia; high blood pressure, stress management, chronic fatigue. People with colds, sore throats, asthma, sinus infections, urinary tract infections, and dermatitis can also find relief with acupuncture.

For example, Acupuncture spirit: it is pulse-regulating acupuncture technique from Ling Shu. By changing pulse, it balances and regulates Qi to gain the strongest result from mildest stimulation by smaller and fewer needles.

Many patients are surprised (and some are relieved!) to know that I specialize in acupuncture without needles. Instead of needles, I use AcuLaser (laser light) to stimulate acupuncture points. Patients find these treatments to be relaxing and effective. Meanwhile, a growing body of clinical and scientific evidence is validating this modern modality when used in the context of the acupuncture meridian system, a framework developed thousands of years ago.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Acupuncturists
For help with adolescents these Acupuncturists provide adolescent Acupuncture. They'll also help with Acupuncture for teens in Westport, teenagers, and Westport teenager issues.

Acupuncture in Westport - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Westport acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
